Tips & Tricks to Making Notebook Rice Crispy Treats

  • Buy rice crispy treats already made, and only use my instructions for decorating them to look like notebooks to save on time.
  • Add letters, numbers, and handwriting to the notebook tops for an added touch.
  • You can save some money by exchanging the Wilton food writers with icing in the color you want for writing on the notebook rice crispy treats.
  • You can exchange the white fondant for a faux fondant that gives you a different texture and is lower in cost.
  • Add chocolate chips to make the notebook paper decoration appear more real as if it’s a three-hole punched piece of paper.
  • Have the kids decorate the notebook so that each is unique to your kid’s vision.

My particular recipe for these notebook rice krispy treats are not Vegan-friendly. There are many Vegan-friendly rice crispy treat recipes online that are Vegan-friendly though.
